IANAL, but:

  You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold each Contributor
  harmless for any liability incurred by, or claims asserted
  against, such Contributor by reason of your accepting any
  such warranty or additional liability.

So we are talking about liability incurred by a Contributor by reason of the
distributor offering a warranty.  Without the distributor accepting
liability, there would be no liability, since otherwise the license
disclaims all such.  Therefore, only those with whom the distributor enters
into a contract providing "support, warranty, indemnity, or other liability
obligations" is entitled to the consideration.  And those would be the
distributor's customers.
